the math work on his deficit plan and his tax plan. are we going to get those details in the course of the debate? >> well, you know, david, i wish you guys were just as tough on the president. the president says he's going to create a million new manufacturing jobs. he doesn't say how. he says he's going to reduce the long-term debt and deficit by $4 trillion. doesn't say how he's going to do it. you know, let's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well. >>> good morning, it is monday, october 1st. it's october, everybody. welcome to "morning joe." >> yeah, you know who's glad september's over? >> who? >> the jets. holy cow! >> i thought you were going to say mitt romney. with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" senior political editor mark halperin and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine john heilemann. guys. hi, willie. >> he
.s. team at the 39th ryder cup. this was aufrl. the europeans roaring bang from a 10-4 deficit late saturday to take a tuning 14 1/2 to 13 1/2 point win. germany's martin kaymer sank a putt on the final hole to seal the victory. honestly it was all lost well before that. europe has won the seven out of the last nine ryder cups. and soledad i don't know if you had a chance to watch this debacle. a debacle embarrassing. >> yes, it was killing my poor husband. all right, john, thank you. >>> back to our top story this morning. two days until the first presidential debate. both candidates are getting last-minute preparations. "the new york times" reporting that mitt romney is coming armed on wednesday night, writing this, mr. romney's team has concluded the debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he's memorized and habeen practicing on airds since august. president obama responded to that report last night with this. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. i don't know about that. who's g
he has remained strong, for instance, on federal spending and dealing with the deficit and debt. they're hitting that in ads. this is something people are genuinely worried about and he can connect to the economy because people in their everyday lives. gregg: juan, as you know unemployment is still above 8%. gdp is a comatose 1.3%. brain-dead on life-support. we have a debt that is crushing of $16 trillion. more americans than ever before, 47 million, are on food stamps. gasoline prices have doubled in the four years that president obama has been in office. i mean, what is he going to say tonight when surely he will be asked about that? >> oh, gregg, i think there is lots of positives to offer. gdp clearly now is far in excess where we were when he took office. if you look at wall street, you look at the nasdaq --. gregg: juan, under reagan it 7% in the reagan recovery. it is 1.3% right now? >> again, what you see is compared to where he took office, gregg. it is much better. economy, if you ask the american consumer right now, they have a much better attitude about where we're going,
's deficit. let's go to clayton. >> big story making headlines this morning. several days after the attack on the u.s. consulate. this is the story that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came o

and the deficit is very important for a candidate to appeal to independents. mitt romney during the presidential primary here that he won convincingly eve emphasized that a great deal and i think that helped him with indianas. we are without a sales tax and income tax. people understand here that financial decisions have consequences. i can recall in 2000 when john mccain talked about the debt and the deficit the bush campaign at the time said what is he talking about? john mccain beat george bush here by 20 minutes in that prime rare re. bush retooled his message and barely won new hampshire by talking about the debt and the deficit. gregg: kevin in 2010 the last election there, if i understand it, if i recall correctly i think republicans won almost every office, but that doesn't mean it's going to happen that way this year, the pendulum could begin to swing in the other direction? >> that's correct. we had the largest republican sweep for a legislature of any state in the country in 2010. four years earlier in 2006 the democrats took control of the legislature at all levels of power for the f
even to grips witness. >> reporter: in 2009 president obama pledged to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term. obviously with the budget deficit still at 1.2 trillion that hasn't happened. how does he get past that at the debates? >> as he said, central to his entirely election argument is things were much worse than we thought they were. the country was in a much-worse situation and the americans who lived through the panic of 2008 tend to agree with him, they tend to easily recall what it was like when they opened their 401k statements before this election in 2008 and said, gee, this is not working. the president does have that going in his favor. the thing that makes him more vulnerable is this. this is where romney can really get him. the president said if he got the more than trillion dollars in stimulus packages that he wanted that he could get unemployment down under 8%, and that is not what happened. so what romney will argue is, that the president has failed and that the failures have been simply too expensive. and you know the new sewing began in romney

[cheering] >> reporter: the campaign shifts into a different stage this week, with wednesday night's high-stakes showed own showdown between about the barack obama and mitt romney. >> every change that has happened in a debate, if you look at the history, it's changed because of somebody's mannerisms or style -- they did badly or well. >> reporter: both candidates will spend the next few days in intense sessions. romney may have the most on the line. his campaign is looking that the for a chance for a game changer. abc news, washington.

. nbc news is the worst this. president, 36 days ow of an election, you promised to cut the deficit in half and you gave us $6 trillion in debt. you said we would have 8.7 million new jobs and unemployment at 5 percent, still hasn't been asked this question. could you imagine if this happened to your father if he was running for election or re-election. >> paul ryan talked about it. he says as conservatives, we are used to media bias. but the desperation of the mainstream media to re-elect barack obama has reached levels we have not seen before. i worry very much that the kind of covering up of hugely important issues, an american ambassador killed in a terror attack that the administration covered up, after it ignored that the threats that he was reporting back to washington. that's very, very serious. when have you a media that won't cover these stories, it begins to really damage, i think, the functioning of our democracy. they have an important role to play and they have abdicalletted responsibility because they have a tingle up their leg over barack obama. >> sean: i think they

, training new teachers and workers bringing down student loans and reducing the deficit. that ad is airing in seven key states. over the next month and a half, we can expect both campaigns to target unlikely voters. that is because early voting is already underway and early voters tend to be educated, informed motivated. basically, they already know who they're voting for. what's left are the undecided and unlikely voters and we can expect both campaigns to work hard to get those people to the polls. meanwhile, florida is trying to keep people away. the state's officially restarting its voter purge with less than six weeks to go until election day. florida stopped its effort earlier this year when its purge list was obviously inaccurate. now the "miami herald" is reporting florida wants 198 people taken off its voter rolls but even the new list is not accurate. the herald is quoting one man who already sent in proof of citizenship but is still on the purge list and about 58% of those people are minorities. back wi
